Nota: "[WORLDS BEYOND] Editor Damon Knight gave Vance the idea of an orbiting satellite as a weightless paradise for grossly obese people and commissioned a story for his magazine. Vance thought the idea 'inspired' and wrote 'Abercrombie Station.' Then WORLDS BEYOND folded before he could submit the story to Knight, so he sold it to THRILLING WONDER STORIES (February 1952). After the story appeared in print, Knight complimented Vance on the concept and said, wistfully, that the same idea had occurred to him but he never got around to writing the story. Vance reminded Knight that he had suggested the original idea and gave Knight due credit when the story was reprinted in The Best of Jack Vance (Pocket Books 1976).
'Abercrombie Station' introduced another of Vance’s spirited young female protagonists, Jean Parlier, who appeared again in 'Cholwell’s Chickens'” (THRILLING WONDER STORIES August 1952). The two novelettes eventually appeared together in 1965 as Monsters in Orbit, half of an Ace Double."
Editorial Blurb (THRILLING WONDER STORIES August 1952)
There have always been colonies - colonies of nudists, artists, vegetarians, non-conformists and plain old rugged individualists. Here at Abercombie Station, for the first time, we have a colony for fat people. Nor is their chosen isolation intended merely to avoid ridicule. It has a practical advantage. Far from Earth's burdensome gravity, freed of the chains of their weight, the fat people can skip as lithesome as lambs on the green, while their avoirdupois, instead of sagging grotesquely, balloons in rich, rosy, enticing curves.
Everybody has a different idea of paradise, but if you happen to be dieting - or should be - you'll have fun with Jack Vance's idea of a heavyweight heaven.
